Edinburgh, and Scottish rugby in general, will say goodbye to Chris Paterson on Saturday when he makes his farewell appearance against Treviso.

The veteran full-back will bring the curtain down on his career at Murrayfield in his side's last match of the PRO12 season.

He has been picked to start against the Italian side with supporters handed the chance to acknowledge the contributions of the nation's record cap holder and points scorer before he hangs up his boots.

"I've always said that I want to go out playing the best rugby I possibly can and I'm ready to move on to an exciting future," said Paterson.

"My retirement is tinged with sadness but my overriding and lasting feelings are ones of happiness, enjoyment and fulfilment, having achieved far more than I ever thought I would and could have in 14 years of the job.

"I'm delighted to be involved in this game and, as always, have done my best in training and will do my best in the game.

"We've had a great season in Europe and have a chance on Saturday to remedy our league form and finish the season well, both for Edinburgh Rugby and me personally."

Blair absent

Mike Blair misses the chance to play one last time for the Gunners, however, due to a shoulder injury, while Jim Thompson is away on Scotland 7s duty.

Andrew Kelly, Kyle Traynor and Jack Gilding, back-row Alan MacDonald and stand-off Phil Godman will all hope to get the chance to come on from the bench.

Meanwhile, Treviso will want to win their eighth seasonal victory - their fifth abroad - and hopefully overtake Connacht in the table.

Franco Smith chooses to bring in Edoardo Gori on the wing, with Tommaso Iannone and Brendan Williams starting from the bench, thus creating an all-Italian starting XV.

As for the forwards, Robert Barbieri, Alessandro Zanni and Francesco Minto start in the back row, while the injured Antonio Pavanello is replaced by Valerio Bernabo.

In the front row, Franco Sbaraglini is starting as hooker and Ignacio Fernandez Rouyet is starting as tighthead prop.
